What is SAMBA?


SAMBA is an add-on package for FREESCO that will add network share connectivity for windoze clients.

Samba is software that can be run on a platform other than Microsoft Windows, for example, UNIX, Linux, IBM System 390, OpenVMS, and other operating systems. Samba uses the TCP/IP protocol that is installed on the host server. When correctly configured, it allows that host to interact with a Microsoft Windows client or server as if it is a Windows file and print server.

samba can be notoriously difficult to configure, but once it's up and running, it does the job very very well. With the help of the forum, most people are able to overcome their intial samba problems.
